“He’s going to miss his flight trying to get that out,” one person joked in the comments.

“Rumor has it he’s still trying to get it back,” another joined.

Meanwhile, some thought that the staff member was clearly laughing too.

He’s also not the first person caught on camera trying to get around luggage size rules.

another man was caught trying to get around EasyJet’s relatively strict baggage ruleswith his suitcase stuck in an airport in Europe back in June.

“WCGW [what could go wrong] if you try to cheat with the size of the luggage,” he posted the video on Reddit was subtitled.

I was inundated with comments from many people who were clearly upset with the traveler’s attempt to circumvent the rules.

“And that’s why I hate flying… So many self-centered, arrogant people,” one person commented.

EasyJet’s carry-on baggage rules changed not too long ago, with the low-cost airline doing away with its free carry-on baggage last year.

Instead, passengers must pay a Flexi fare to get free carry-on or pay for their luggage. In order to stay free, it can be “maximum size 45 x 36 x 20 cm (including handles or wheels) and must fit under the seat in front of you,” according to the airline’s website.
